creative mind has a beautiful and often mysterious way of organizing
stimuli. External influences enter the body freely and are
subsequently poked, nudged and shoved through a sifting process that
feels at times arbitrary. Consciously and with full intention Lori
Freedman and Nicolas Caloia have developed a certain "defining"
process in attempt to control this phenomenon.
They played, recorded, talked and wrote together for about fifteen years and then formed Mercury. They decided to develop a singular concert repertoire of music that reflected the idea of the "open form" composition by hoisting a selection of local musicians up, out and into the exiting and unheard world of the "actuelle".
From their immediate community Mercury asked players with whom they play to write music for their duo. This is that music, solicited from Malcolm Goldstein, Pierre-Yves Martel, Rainer Weins, Martin Arnold and Mercury itself.
